In March 2015 I was working as a labourer on a building site in Perth, Western Australia. Two of my good friends Tommy and Pearse reached out to me for help. They were going to San Diego for the summer on a J1 visa and wanted to get in shape. They wanted to be “Cali ready” as they called it!
As they knew me, my knowledge, qualifications and passion for fitness, they knew I could help them. I set up an 8 week online program for them and we had weekly check ins to monitor progress and make any changes needed to the plan. They both did excellent and got themselves “Cali ready”!
In June 2015 I went travelling Thailand for 3 weeks before coming home to Ireland. On day 15 we went on a day trip to see the beautiful Maya Beach (where the film the beach was made) just off Phi Phi island. I had no internet reception all day.
When we got back to our hotel room that night exhausted, my phone starting going off over and over again. I thought it was broken!
Tommy and Pearse had posted their results on facebook and gotten over 600 likes between them.
